Why are there so few anime where the characters actually look Asian?
>>
Because that's not kawaii.

There are many reasons as to why, the most common excuse is that the audience don't like to see characters that "hit too close to home." They want to escape reality, and bond with characters who are cute and different... people they don't see everyday.

Why wouldn't you exploit the means of drawn media full of easy visual metaphors? Why make it a poor copy of cinema? For what purpose?

That contradicts live action and film.

onion head.
These kind of pictures kind scares me for some reason, especially those type of haircut.

Most anime eyes are extremely contrived. They don't look like any race. Skin tones tend to be the tone of the page because it's usually done in ink alone. Manga at any rate.

When you look up Jomon Japanese on image search, none of them look like that second picture. Most of them look like white people
>>
>>151699011
1) Kawaii is in hence the big eyes, small noses, etc
2) Most anime art is too simplistic to differentiate characters based on face alone so they need to come in multiple hair, eye and (sometimes) skin colors. Animes where the characters actually look Asian usually have more expressive art

Your pic is probably a mix blood (and cherry picked one on top of that).
Whereas the illustration is showing the common trait of pure Jomon from ages ago.
Another example would be Ainu people which is believed to be a derivative of Jomon people.

why don't you try frogposting or spurdo sparde, memeguy?
>>
>>151699011
Anime character designs are based off of Asian features as much as whiteys will stroke their egos and tell you otherwise. It's just that anime tend to simplify forms and stylize which is why they don't look exactly Asian.
>>
>>151699011
Because you white want to see Anime characters White
